[0.17.14] Changing from Team 1 to Team 1 in PvP kills player

Post by Llama »

Changing from Team 1 to Team 1 in PvP kills player.

What did you do?
While navigating the Admin menu in a PvP game I clicked on Change Team to see what teams were available as I had been trying to create a 3rd team. There was no 3rd team so I wanted to close the menu, but with no Cancel or Back button visible I decided to join my own team to close the menu.

What happened?
I suddenly found myself in a different location without any items. Apparently it killed me which I did not expect, nor did it tell me I'd been killed.

What did you expect to happen instead?
I expected the menu to close without killing or relocating the player, as there was no change going from Team 1 to Team 1. It also highlighted that it would help if there was a cancel button in the Change Team menu (I did later discover that clicking Change Team menu again in the corner would close it, but it was too late and not obvious, I already tried clicking the Admin menu, pressing Esc, opening inventory to replace the window)

Steps to reproduce:
  • Host PvP scenario
  • LMB click Admin menu in the top left
  • LMB click Change Team
  • LMB click Join for team you are already on
  • Die
It happened 2 out of 2 times
